WE SERVE PEOPLE NOT POWER
In an ever increasingly divided world, our job isn’t to drive people further apart with fear and fiction but bring them together with empathy and evidence
Far too many Journalists sit comfortably trapped in their own bubble of privilege and power, talking to each other and the so-called political class, rather than serving the people they’re meant to inform.
DDN is the antithesis of ego, personality and moral superiority. We prioritise people, ideas, evidence and community above all.
If you feel let down, neglected and underrepresented, DDN will cultivate creative ways to reach, empower and engage you.
DDN can be summed up by HL Mencken’s definition of the aims of good journalism: "comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable".
